Here are some interesting links on the topic:

News flash: Debian is packaging Fork Awesome and is migrating some other packages that currently use Font Awesome over to Fork Awesome as a fully-free replacement. Hopefully those patches go upstream; congrats to @xuv and the rest of the squad for tackling a high-profile source-code "takeback" and producing a usable free-software replacement.
Spain court confirms jail sentence for former IMF chief Rato
All possibilities of appeal are exhausted, one of the most high-profile bankers of Spain needs to go to jail now. This makes Spain only the second country (after Iceland) where any prominent banker were sent to jail following the 2008 financial crisis. What this article fails to mention, like all others I found, is that the trial and conviction was due to an unprecedented citzien's campaign (led by people such as Simona
Levi), which raised funds, hired lawyers and organized leaks to gather evidence. More on this aspect in an (older) article in The Nation.
